Hisar, May 27

With girl students staging dharnas in a number of villages demanding upgrading of schools, Education Minister Ram Bilas Sharma today said a list of 122 schools that had been upgraded would be released on Monday.

Talking to the mediapersons in Bhiwani today, the minister said it had become a trend to stage a dharna to raise the demand. Blaming the previous government for the controversy, the minister said the Congress government had upgraded 244 government schools, but without requisite infrastructure.

On the statement of Additional Chief Secretary PK Das that the process of upgrading schools for 2017-18 had been completed and that no more schools would be upgraded, the minister denied any rift between them, while reiterating that the list of upgraded schools would be issued on Monday.

The government school at Riwasa village of Bhiwani where the girls locked up the school two days ago was along among the schools on the list, he assured.

Sharma said he was not satisfied with the results of Class X of the Haryana Board of School Education. The previous government used to give 20 per cent grace marks to ensure better result. He said a technical hitch had resulted in goof-up in compiling the merit list of the matriculation result of the HBSE.

Villagers lock school over poor result

Hisar: Residents on Saturday locked Government High School at Nawa Rajgarh village in Bhiwani to protest against poor Class X result. They claimed that most of the posts of teacher were lying vacant for one year, which had affected the studies. The school’s 46 students had appeared in the Class X examination and 36 have failed while four would be reappearing to clear the exam. The remaining six students have managed to secure pass marks. Sarpanch Phool Kumar said they would take up the issue with the higher authorities. TNS
